The best score of the last 20 years! The sound is so impressive!
Bah! It's good, but to say there's been nothing better written since? Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, At World's End, How to Train Your Dragon...bullshit!
Besides, 20 years ago was 1994. This came out in 1991. :b
LOTR...no...JP...no...POC3...ok, you're right!HTTYD...no...:P yes, i know :D But this score was Hans breakthrough :)
This score is far superior than HTTYD... lol
RIP Edmund Meinerts
You seriously think this is better than Lord of the Rings?
This just in: Backdraft will go down in history as the best score ever written for film. You heard it here first, folks! People three centuries from now will remember BACKDRAFT as the pivotal score that had "impressive sound."
No, we don't. :P
@Edmund: yes, i think this is better! :)
This is the worst bullshit i ve ever read since the bible... How is it even possible to think that this score which doesnt even have 1h of music can beat the LOTR and its 12 hours of music? Backdraft, honnestly no one gives a fuck about that one, LOTR has sold out its concerts for the last past years so please think this straight.
ok sorry, i change my feelings and my mind :D
there are more interesting subjects to press on than what's the best music ever written. I for one like to know what happened during the album production for this film. Compared to this bootleg the stuff on the Milan disc sound like all new recordings. Tthat epilogue cue in particular sounds hell of a lot better on the Milan disc than here, even if the sound quality is not so good.
Of course, I love me some Zimmer, but only Zimmer drones think this beats things like Jurassic Park and LOTR. Pathethic...
The film mix (or original mix or what you wanna call it) of the Epilogue cue (or all the cues for that matter, but in particular the Epilogue) I find far more superior, and more enjoying, and certainly more powerful!, than the lousy album mixes.
Only thing I liked about the album mix was that extra piano...
This is a nice score but holy shit it doesn't hold a candle to most HZ scores, and certainly not to HTTYD!
I gotta agree with ds here. I love BACKDRAFT and I'm a pretty big hz fan but there is no comparison. Especially with HTTYD. IMO zimmer cannot orchestrate in the same way with an organic orchestra the same way as shore, Willian's and even powell. He adds a lot of extra layers through synth. But zimmer is the best at the style of music he produces.
Listening to this complete score for the first time and it's really striking how different the mix is on the album. The snare drums are much further forward, and everything sounds a lot brighter and immediate but also "thinner" on the album. Whereas the film mix has synth parts I didn't even know exist, like at the very beginning of the main titles/"Fighting 17th".
I'm trying to decide which version I like more, and it's difficult! The film versions sound "richer" but I miss the ballsy snare drum rhythms...
One is HZ, the other (the album) is not. End of story... :P
